Learn the NPA pitching/throwing model for health first, efficient biomechanics.
Age appropriate, cross specific exercises for each athlete to increase arm speed and safe velocity.
Personal Screening (STAT) to highlight strengths and weaknesses
Patterning and Skill development: Every player will be given a full assessment of weak points and a tool kit to address areas of improvement.
*In addition, each player will receive a professional high speed video analysis of their pitching mechanics and recommended corrective actions.

- The focus is on full body movement patterns to safely increase arm speed
- Biomechanics for timing, kinematic sequencing and shoulder/arm movement
- Functional strength for ground force production, torque and shoulder/arm strength
- Body work for stability, mobility and flexibility
- Joint integrity work for durability, then machine work, then free weight work
- Aerobic/anaerobic work- daily
